As for the ramp jondog had some great points. Also take into consideration the low clearance a sportbike has. The ramp usually has to be a bit longer to minimize the angle at the top. Also I would push it up the ramp a couple of times before riding it to make sure it has enough clearance, and also remember with your weight on the bike it will sit a tad lower yet.
Ok, i am sorry too but you have to admit.........aaaaa forget it

No worries man ^

Without me sitting on it, my bike is like 4ft 1 inch at the mirrors. The distance from the van floor to the top if the van is like 4ft 5 inches so it should physically fit but the question is how do i get it up there by myself and into the van?

I agree that it's best to walk it up.Things will be very significantly easier if you have something to step up onto as you get halfway along the ramp. Then getting yourself into the van isn't the tough part that so often causes a disaster.
